Vedic Mantras and Remedies for Reducing the Malefic ( Bad)Effects of Shani Graha By Guruji Astrologer
Lord Shani Remedies and Maha Dasha
In Vedic astrology, the planet Lord Saturn is called Shanaiswara. The name Shanaiswara means "slow mover." Shanaiswara, or Shani Dev, is the son of Surya Dev and his shadow wife Chaya, and is the slowest of the Grahas. Lord Saturn takes 2 1/2 years in each Rasi, completing one cycle every 30 years.
Lord Shanidev plays the role of a judge in human lives. Shani Dev in Hinduism, keeps an eye on our deeds; depending on our karmas he will reward or punish us. Lord Shani is the most feared of all deities because of his power to turn a king into a pauper within a moment. King Vikramaditya is one such person who had to suffer the wrath of Shani Dev.
Lord Shani is most powerful in the seventh house. Lord Saturn rules over the two sidereal signs of Capricorn and Aquarius. Shani exalts in Libra and falls in the sign of Aries. Lord Saturn is a particularly beneficial planet for Taurus and Libra ascendants.
A malefic Lord Shani could mean diseases like arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, or gout. Saturn affects one adversely when he occupies certain positions in one's horoscope like the Saade Sati (7 1/2 years) or Ashtama Shanaiswara (Saturn in 8th house—2 1/2 years).
Lord Shani Puja and Grah Shanti Shani Pooja are some remedies done to appease the planet Saturn and reduce the hardships one will have to face during such bad times. Apart from that there are a number of remedial measures one can follow including chanting Shani Mantras. The Shani Mantra has to be chanted facing the west and a minimum of seven times a day. One can chant the mantra 108 times using a rudraksha rosary and by keeping a shani yantra for better results.
